Akhila started out as nature and street photographer and has turned her focus towards
telling positive stories of womanhood. She started Fierce in 2017 as an ongoing project
to explore the strength, joy, and ownership that physical activity brings to women within
the Indian context. Having been an active sports-person from an early age, she
intimately understands the connection between movement and self-perception. She
hopes that Fierce will kick-start a dialogue on body positivity, especially among young
girls who deal with unrealistic expectations of the female body. Outside of her
photography, Akhila advises companies on their corporate responsibility strategies as
an environmental consultant.
Come and join us as Akhila shares her experience as an exhibiting artist of CPB2019
